Presentation Description : Polarization sensitive OCT (PS-OCT) is a functional extension of OCT. In addition to conventional OCT imaging based on the intensity of light backscattered by ocular tissues, PS-OCT provides additional information based on the polarization properties of ocular structures. This additional contrast channel alleviates the segmentation of retinal features and thus facilitates the quantitative assessment of clinically relevant parameters such as drusen volume or the area of atrophic zones in dry AMD. Furthermore, PS-OCT enables quantitative measurements of tissue inherent polarization properties which can provide further insight into tissue microstructure in healthy and diseased eyes.

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
